About Sis


I am a woman raised in Montana.  My Dad worked in construction, so our life was one of feast and famine.  We spent all summer stocking up on food and supplies.  In the winter we hunkered down through months with no money.  This was my normal.  I didn’t realize until much later that everyone didn’t do this.  I learned so much about being self sufficient and confident from my parents.

I was raised to understand that you must do what it takes to take care of your family.  You always take care of your family, friends and the land around you.  I am not a bunny hugger, but I am a dyed in the wool conservationist.  We need to take care of the gifts we have been given in life…our family, land, time and talents.  I was also raised to believe that you prepare,and take care of your own.  Help doesn’t always come in time…so help thine self.  That is what I plan on sharing with you fine folks…help yourself.  You can do all these things.  The question is will you?  Come on in and explore…and Welcome!fire ring montana

    >> You express yourself very clearly and simple. This will keep your readers on the page.
    >> Are you still living in Montana repeating the cycle you were exposed to growing up? This will make it easy to remain current on the subject so that you truly come across as an “authority”.

    I wish you the best with your site.

    • Thanks for the affirmation. Yes I am a Montanan and I live here now. I think this crazy weather is definitely a wake up call for folks. I am excited to get the word out to people. I hope I can get people thinking before a large scale disaster comes to their area. Have a wonderful day.

  3. I just love your site Enid – well done! I am living in Germany for a few months and originally from Ireland, people here in Germany conserve, recycle and reuse everything. It is a wonderful thing to become aware of and start to practice. The Earths resources are not infinite – we need to learn new skills.

    • It is very important to use things to the fullest. We are so much more appreciative people when we live this out everyday. We don’t take so much for granted. It also gives us more time and money to invest in the people we love. Thanks for commenting.

  4. Enid, I love your matter-of-fact, down to earth outlook on life. I think we have much in common and would be good friends if we met in person. Your website is a treasure trove of information and will be a great resource to anyone who visits.


    • I am glad you like my style…I think a conversation over a cup of coffee is the best kind. Thats the feel I’m going for. I would love to gab with you anytime. I am always up for a good gab. Have a great day.

  5. Enid, this is such an informative site. Thank you so much for sharing with us all. I have learned so much and I will definitely be back! Oh….by the way….love the layout, my navigation experience was awesome.

    • I am glad you found some useful tidbits. That is exactly what I am hoping for. I am trying to make my site as user friendly as possible. Come back anytime!

  6. Great Niche- I love it-great and very important content we should all be looking at-I’ve watched that TV show called Doomsday Preppers so I have some idea of your concept. Good choice of categories and website has good contrast between text and background.

    good work!

    • Yeah…I’ve seen that show. It is kinda fun to see how far people will run with an idea. What I noticed is that everyone has a different fear and they prepare for that scenario. I hope to teach people that if you live a generally prepared life, you don’t have to be afraid. Most preparation is a huge improvement over the average complacency we live with. Anything you do is better than nothing.

    • Thank you! I am glad you are finding good content. You are welcome to share the articles. The easiest way is to go up and right-click in the address bar of the article you like, it should get highlighted, then click copy in the menu that appears.

If you are on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, you can click the icon,under specific articles, and it should share to your page. I looked your site over and saved it in my favorites. You have a lot of good info as well.

  7. Hey sis, I really like your site and niche you have chosen. I read through some your articles and blogs and your passion is very apparent. I will be back to your site and learn more about gardening although I used to help my grandfather and uncles on the ranch I never have tried gardening. So I’m looking forward to gettin help from your posts.
    Thank you for feedback on my site.

    Best regards,


    • I’m glad you are interested in gardening and found my site. I learned to garden from my dad as an adult. I didn’t have much interest as a kid, but I have come to appreciate the wisdom of growing food and knowing where it came from.
